HIV- and TB-free children

HIV- and TB-free children

The birth of a child is one of the greatest symbols of hope in our world. But for children born with HIV and who get TB in poor countries, life may be short and full of suffering.

Caritas Internationalis is urging governments and pharmaceutical companies to act now and ensure more children do not die because of lack of access to HIV and TB testing and treatment.

Watch a film about the effect of HIV and TB on children and their families in Swaziland and South Africa. Download photos.
